CanonCanon Powershot S2 IS digital camera review : The Canon Powershot S2 IS, quite a mouth full, is the successor of the S1. The Powershot S2 IS was officially introduced in April of this year and is available for some months now. The Canon S2 IS camera features an impressive optical zoom of 12x combined with an almost indispensable image stabilisation. When used to working with this function, you don't want to do without it anymore. The specifications of the Canon Powershot S2 IS are impressive; 5 Megapixels, 12x zoom with optical image stabilisation, high video clip resolution and the already rather famous DIGIC II processor. We have tested the Canon S2 IS in practice, our experiences with this camera are written down in our review

The processor of the Powershot S2 IS even makes it possible to capture a maximum resolution digital still whilst shooting video. As well as giving camera performance a real boost, DIGIC II also improves colour rendition and white balance accuracy, as well as speeding up playback review and scrolling. A USB 2.0 Hi-speed interface is provided for super quick image and video transfers. Addition of the DIGIC II processor increases AF speed by approximately 45% and improves start up times by over 50%. With a feature that outshines many digital SLR cameras, the Canon Powershot S2 IS digital camera will shoot continually and uninterrupted at 2.4 fps until the memory card becomes full, providing users with a new realm of action sport sequence opportunity. 17 still shooting modes include full manual mode, 6 pre-set Special Scene modes for quickly optimising settings in tricky lighting conditions, and Stitch Assist for multi-image panoramas.

Canon S2 IS - Remarkable qualities
The excellent working stabilisation combined with the high resolution is pleasant to work with. It makes photographing a lot more relaxed. The effort to keep the camera as still as possible when photographing in large telephoto, is no longer an issue. The sound quality and the possibility of taking pictures during recording a video enhance the multi-media joy. The camera's hand fit is perfect, thanks to the obvious handgrip. Colour rendition and exposure are both excellent and hardly require any corrections. Add to this the remarkably economical character of the camera and Canon once again impressed friend and foe with a high quality digital camera added to the Mega zoom group.

Canon Powershot S2 IS - Digital camera review
At this very moment, Canon is holding a strong grip on the digital camera market. From all sides negative news comes to us, prognoses are being adjusted, 80% down is a shocking number and we even see renowned manufactures withdrawing from what seemed to be the promising area of the world before: Asia. Canon however is a strong player in this turbulent market and the strong camera brand takes a leading position and is able to maintain it dominantly. Nearly eight months of 2005 have already gone by, and the rest of this year will become a fierce battle for many manufacturers. But Canon seems to be ready for it!.
